Andro Kinetic Supreme OFF
A clear recommendation for the spin-orientated modern offensive player: A Koto/Ayous veneer combination stands for excellent ball feeling and control without lacking enough power for offensive action. The high ball bounce gives some extra impulse in regard to block- and topspin-strategies. You can rely on this blade at all situations. A thin Koto outer veneer creates a fantastic feedback in regard to ball contact and undreamed possibilities for spin-orientated action are opened to the player. Other advantageous features are the light weight and the Kinetic technology, built-in the grip, exposing the Kinetic Supreme OFF as an absolute top class blade.

Reviews of Andro Kinetic Supreme OFF (6)
This is an overall good blade. I would not say the speed rating is accurate. It feels much slower. I paired it with Apollo 3 FH and Raksa 9 on BH. Mid distance loops have to really stroke hard to be offensive. Other than that control is very good and very low vibration.
Nice looking blade, excellent finishes. Used it for 6 months...Good for close to the table game, but lacks power from mid distanse and further away from the table. Roxon450 MAX (forehand) and Platin Soft MAX backhand were the best matching this blade rubbers for me.
I played with this for a year. A bit slow, but great feel and very good for topspin attacking loops.
To me this is a very reliable tool for the offense player unless you are aiming at ultimate speed. I do not see really many/any better options at this price level. I am using it with Andro Hexer Duro 2.1. The feeling it gives me is more of a neutral, solid tool, not so much one of a specific character. I also play the Andro CS7 Pro, which feels a bit more 'woody' and probably has a bit more control in the short game( it is rated slower anyway). I would say topspin is a bit easier with the Supreme Off in this comparison, meaning more feeling to it. This blade seems to work for me. I use the straight handle which felt a bit thin at first because the CS7 handles are wider. But I got used to it very quickly. One day I may need some more speed, the I would check out one of the more expensive carbon blades.
This blade was almost the perfect blade for me, excepted that it is way too slow. I would certainly not rank it as OFF, but maybe its light weight as something to do with it. Apart from this, the blade seemed very nice to me. Very comfortable handle, light & well balanced blade, very accurate, loads of touch & control. I tried it with tenergy 64 (BH) and boost tx (forehand). the tenergy felt very soft, and I could easily create spin, something that I do not usually do with my BH. However, I really felt it was a slow, slower for instance than my tibhar IV-S in every aspect. I actually played some very good games with it, but as I can't create very fast top spins with this racket, I decided to move to another blade (but I am still in love with that blade). I am not sure why this blade was rated off (maybe I got a bad one), but if you really look for something off to power loop, well I am afraid it is not the right blade (well, you can, but the ball is likely to come back a few times before you manage to win the point). Top spins are usually accurate and quite spinny otherwise. Hitting balls (what I usually do with my backhand) was more difficult for me, and probably needed a radical change with my swing.
Conclusion, if you are not looking for a fast blade, you may want to give it a try.
this blade is very nice for looping. It is not the lightest but is still comfortable. I use it with lkt pro xp rubber which is great if you are looking for a cheap rubber.
